Sexual Empowerment Advocate Talks on Embracing the Power of Sex Through her Book and ‘Sex and Food’ V-log

 

 

By day Shanna Douglas is a Catering Office
Manager. By night, she writes Real Life Erotica and
is a Sexual Empowerment Advocate.
Shanna doesn’t remember when, but she has
always known she was a sexual being. As a young
girl, before becoming sexually active, she kept
journals of her thoughts. She grew up in a family
that is very open and often has sex-based
conversations. Shanna says that she was taught at
an early age about the do’s and don’ts of sex – the
how to and how not to, the good, the bad and the
ugly of sex and relationships.
As a Sexual Empowerment Advocate, she created
Tasteful Treasures to help women enhance their
sexual desires and let them know that it is
acceptable to be a sexual woman. In 2019, as
Jade’s Desire, Shanna penned her thoughts in a
diary entitled The Real Thoughts Of A Sexual
Submissive. The collection of real life erotic
experiences and thoughts leaves a lot to the
imagination as it educates, empowers and creates
desires.

 

 

 

“Tasteful Treasures is all about sex and making those taboo topics not so taboo. We emphasize that it’s ok to be his lady in the streets and his freak in the sheets.”

 

 

VERSAFI MAGAZINE: AS I WAS LOOKING OVER YOUR BIO, I WAS REALLY IMPRESSED ABOUT YOUR “NIGHT JOB” BECAUSE A LOT OF WOMEN AREN’T IN TOUCH WITH THEIR SEXUAL BEING WITHIN THEM. HOW DID YOU DISCOVER THIS SIDE OF YOU AND HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN THIS ALL CAME ABOUT?

JADE’S DESIRE: That is a good question because I really don’t know. I’ve been interested in sex before I even started having sex and don’t know why. I can’t think of anything that triggered my interest and that’s the truth.

VERSAFI: WRITING EROTICA HAS IT’S SENSUAL MEANING TO IT THAT CAPTURES THINGS IN A SEXUAL SENSE. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN PENNING EROTICA POETRY?

JD: I started writing my thoughts and imagination when I was a kid – I’d say around 13. I got in trouble at first since it was so vivid, and I hadn’t told anyone about my thoughts. At that time, they were truly just thoughts. As I got older, I was always talking about sex in the Facebook groups that I was a member of and someone I knew told me that I needed to start a blog about sex. Fast forward a few years and here we are.

VERSAFI: DID YOU GROW UP ON READING ZANE IN YOUR EARLIER ADULTHOOD/TEEN YEARS?

JD: No, I didn’t start reading Zane until I got older; however, I was bored and intrigued at the same time. I was like “this is so fake” and “no one does this”. {laughs} I would look at my friends like “are ya’ll serious with this right now?” So, I figured, if she could do fiction then I could do nonfiction.

VERSAFI: I DON’T REALLY HEAR A LOT ABOUT WOMEN BEING A SEXUAL EMPOWERMENT ADVOCATE AND I THINK IT’S QUITE IMPRESSIVE THAT YOU AREN’T ASHAMED TO SHOW IT. READING THAT YOU PATTERNED THE LIFE OF VANESSA DEL RIO WHO IS A SEXUAL SELF-AWARENESS ADVOCATE AS WELL. DID YOU RECEIVE ANY BACKLASH FROM FRIENDS OR FAMILY?

JD: No, my family supports me 100% and they have always told me to go for it. I used to watch Vanessa Del Rio when I was growing up and practice everything she did. My aunt taught me how to have oral sex, but it was Vanessa who showed me techniques and take to pride in everything you do. She also always taught me it’s ok to be sexual and to be a lady at all times. My aunt also told me that you can’t go around having oral sex with everyone. It’s the love of the act that drives me.

 

VERSAFI: TELL US A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT TASTEFUL TREASURES. WHAT DOES YOUR COMPANY CONSISTS OF?

JD: Tasteful Treasures is all about sex and making those taboo topics not so taboo. We emphasize that it’s ok to be his lady in the streets and his freak in the sheets. I am currently pursuing other avenues that represent the African American man. You have to stay tuned for more. {winks}

VERSAFI: HOW DOES YOUR COMPANY HELP WOMEN TO HELP THEIR SEXUAL DESIRES?

JD: Tasteful Treasures is all about teaching women to be empowered in their sexuality. I teach and share with my audience what they want to learn. I also encourage women that if you have a sexual
desire to try it and if you don’t like it don’t do it again. Just like food, at least try it before you say you don’t like it.

VERSAFI: LET’S TALK ABOUT YOUR BOOK ‘REAL THOUGHTS OF A SEXUAL SUBMISSIVE’ WHAT YEAR DID THAT BOOK WAS PUBLISHED?

JD: I am happy to say that it was officially published June 1, 2020 but I did a soft launch at the end of 2019.

 

VERSAFI: WHAT MESSAGE DO YOU WANT WOMEN TO RECEIVE WHILE READING YOUR BOOK?

JD: Honestly, I don’t know. This started out as me just wanting to write a book to share my thoughts and experiences. However, in listening to what other women and men have said about the book, I want readers to be educated, be comfortable to have conversations as well as be comfortable with their sexual thoughts and not be afraid to be aroused. Again, being empowered to explore their sexual desires.

VERSAFI: YOU ARE ALSO THE HOST OF YOUR PODCAST CALLED ‘THE SEXUAL SUBMISSIVE.’ ON THE SHOW WHAT DO YOU TALK ABOUT? I KNOW YOU ARE VERY TRANSPARENT AND STRAIGHT TO THE POINT SO I WANT OUR READERS TO CAREFULLY READ WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO SAY.

JD: I talk about sex and techniques – the how- to’s, the proper way for certain positions and why some women refuse to do or try certain positions. The conversations are open, transparent and definitely adults only. I am very straightforward in sharing my thoughts and experiences. If you are going to suck a dick, suck it. If you are going to give head, make love to it, get to know it, become one with it and it will pay off. My biggest topic that I get asked about is anal sex and the reverse cowgirl, for some strange reason. So, I often give tips on how to do it and how it should feel.

VERSAFI: WHAT IS THE NAME OF YOU V-LOG WITH CHEF G? I KNOW YOU DO V-LOGS WITH SEX AND FOOD AND I KNOW I’M DYING TO KNOW WHAT THAT IS AS WELL AS THE READERS. TELL US MORE ABOUT THAT AND HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN CREATING THIS V-LOG? 

JD: The name of it is Tasteful Treasures & Soul Unique Presents Sex and Food. It started with me doing a segment of sex and food on my podcast. It was more so having couples open up to doing things differently sexually and comparing sex to food. After I did a couple of segments, I figured I would add a little spice to it, so I went to Chef G and told him my vision and what I was thinking. As a trained chef, I’m very picky with food, so I wanted the best and someone that could be passionate from beginning to end. The very first segment we did was a dry run so that he could see my vision. After he saw my vision, he brought his flavor and expertise to it. Sex and Food has been a fan favorite. The goal is to bring couples, food and sex together – allowing them try different foods, being open to new things and having a wonderful date night. We’ve been recording together since May, but I’ve been talking about it since last year. The v-log is exactly 15 minutes with good food and a combination of great sex tips and tricks.

VERSAFI: ARE YOU CURRENTLY WORKING ON ANY NEW BOOK PROJECTS OR EVENTS WE SHOULD BE LOOKING OUT FOR?

JD: I’m currently working on Volume II of the book. I always want to keep it spicy, so Chef G and I are continuing to record new segments for Sex and Food. My team and I have a few irons in the fire which includes a book tour and signing.

VERSAFI: LET US KNOW HOW CAN THE READERS REACH OUT TO YOU REGARDING YOUR BUSINESS AND THE BOOK AND ON SOCIAL MEDIA AS WELL.

JD: Please stay connected and join the conversations. I am always open to answer questions and can be reached via email jadesdesire69@gmail.com. Follow me on Instagram @sexualsubmissive1 and like my Facebook page Jade’s Desire Tasteful Treasures 69. My website is tastefultreasures69.com. The website has my blog on there, Sex and Food videos and menu items and a link to purchase the book. There is little of me everywhere.
